As a cross-institutional student you are allowed to carry your fee status from your home institution if you provide confirmation in your application. This may include access to a HECS-HELP or FEE-HELP loan, but not a SA-HELP loan.

Your tuition fees will vary depending on whether you are a Commonwealth supported or fee-paying student at your home institution.
